Property Description

This sprawling country estate, set on 268 delightful western Catskills acres, features 2 distinct home sites (each with stocked ponds), multiple useful outbuildings, panoramic vistas, an upper and lower streams, and an extensive recreational trail network. The setting is ideal for a private upstate getaway space, recreational club, or investment opportunity.

Entering off County Highway 26 (only 2:15 to the GWB!), the driveway takes you down into a private oasis, passing through an open meadow and stream with south facing views (an excellent location for hydroponics, greenhouses, or solar production), and on to the lower house site. This 4 bedroom 2 bath home has been recently thoughtfully renovated with a brand new kitchen, appliances (the Kitchen Queen stove itself can heat the home, bake and cook), new roof, and new septic/utilities/systems. The lower level offers an open design with the combined living and dining room space opening out to a deck (with wood storage below) with views of the 0.7 acre pond. The upper level is a primary suite with bathroom, office nook, walk-in closet, and balcony. This house also features 3 attached garage spaces completely stocked with tools and parts. Adjacent to the lower pond, you will find a fenced horse run and 4 stall horse barn with tack room. Continuing from the main lower home site, the driveway passes two more outbuildings; the larger pole barn has a high clearance entry door and plenty of work space. The garage structure offer more storage or workshop space.

Ascending the well-engineered switchback driveway, you find the second home site. A 2014 3 bedroom 2 bath doublewide manufactured home and 2 car, 2 story Dutch style garage shed sit prominently on the lower slopes of the property, with splendid south/east vistas. The home is immaculate and bright, with natural light filling the open concept space. Another central Kitchen Queen stove offers utility and charm. The generous living room is ideal for entertaining or simply enjoying the views, and the modern kitchen and dining room complete the main space. Two bedrooms lead to the primary bedroom with en-suite bath. The front deck looks out over another pond, and behind the garage is a small waterfall and another pond.

The property itself contains approximately 51.4 acres of combined open meadow spaces and home/building envelopes. The remaining 216.6 acres are a certified Tree Farm, enrolled in the NY 480A Forestry Management Program, which results in long term pristine wildlife habitat and diverse native ecosystems, timber income, and reduced property taxes (total $6,310/year !!) - while still allowing for numerous recreational pursuits along the miles of well-maintained trails. The property is sold furnished, along with many other extras - too many to list!  Don't miss this unique property.
